What's for dessert?
Bread and butter pudding
This is an old British dessert that I saw on BBC and gave it a try, not only is it delicious but it is simple and doesn't require a lot of ingredients. I mean what more could you ask for? I thought I should share it with you guys and I bet your little ones will be asking for seconds!
white bread (4 slices)
125 ml milk
5 Tbsp sugar
Sultanas (optional)- don't worry if you don't find sultanas, you can still do without them. Just don't replace them with raisins because raisins burn and give the pudding an 'ashy' taste.
Ice-cream to serve
Pre-heat oven to 180°C
Cut out the crusty sides of each slice and butter on only one side each
Cut each slice into 4 squares or triangles
Butter an oven-proof dish and place the bread pieces making two layers, butter side up.
If you are using sultanas sprinkle them between the two layers and on top
In a bowl mix well the egg, milk and sugar and pour evenly over the bread pieces
Sprinkle some sugar on top and set aside for 15 minutes
Place in oven and bake for 45 minutes to an hour or until light brown
Let it cool for 15-20 minutes
Serve with ice-cream and enjoy!
